A trader from Wembley who was jailed for selling equipment that allowed football fans to watch premier league matches for free has been ordered to pay back more than £55,000.
Helidon Vuciterni, 44, ran Alsat UK in Willesden Lane, Willesden, which specialised in equipment that allowed subscription TV services to be viewed for free.
He provided hardware and software including codes to unscramble encrypted broadcasts and also offered tutorial videos and an internet discussion and advice forum.
Last year he was jailed for nine months for the fraud which scammed SkyTV and BT Sport out of hundreds and thousands of pounds.
This week at Willesden Magistrates Court a confiscation hearing lead by Brent Council resulted in him being ordered to pay £46,801 with added costs of £8,851 for his crime.
